The Telegraph recounted one such incident at Rye College in East Sussex, where a girl self-identified as a cat. Her classmates who refused to play along with the insanity gave the would-be feline a reminder that she is a girl. However, the woke institution reprimanded the classmates who gave a reality check, telling them their remarks "really upset" their classmate who identified as a cat.
But this wasn't the only story shared by the outlet, as students in other schools also identified as other creatures.
One student at a secondary school in South West England insisted on being addressed as a dinosaur. Another student insisted on being addressed as a horse. A third student wore a cape and demanded that they be acknowledged as a moon – a literal lunatic, to put it bluntly.
The Telegraph also published the testimony of a secondary school student in Wales regarding a fellow pupil who "feels very discriminated against if you do not refer to them as 'catself.'" The student added: "When they answer questions, they meow rather than answer a question in English. And the teachers are not allowed to get annoyed about this because it's seen as discriminating." (Related: Substitute teacher was FIRED for refusing to "meow" to a student who claims to self-identify as a CAT.)
The student lamented: "It's affecting other people and their education and everybody in their lessons. It’s distracting to sit in a lesson and have someone meow to a teacher rather than answer in English, especially at secondary school age. That's going to take a lot out of a lesson because people are going to spend the entire lesson talking about whoever it is over there meowing to the teacher."
Tracy Shaw of the grassroots Safe Schools Alliance UK (SSA UK) said children coming to school and insisting on being addressed as an animal is just a small sign of a bigger, underlying problem.
"If a child is coming to school identifying as a cat or a horse, that should immediately raise red flags. Affirming children as animals harms those children, as it fails to look into their lives and get them the help they need. It also harms other children in the school," she said.
"The problem is that teachers have a blind spot where anything involving identity comes in because they are frightened of doing the wrong thing. They think they are being kind by affirming these behaviors. But they are not being kind because they are likely to be missing all sorts of things that are going on in that child's life."
Christian Concern CEO Andrea Williams stressed that the Telegraph's story "exposes the confusion and untruths being embedded in schools which are developing into a public health crisis." She added that "inclusive education" espoused by the Left " leaves teachers, parents and children lost in moral chaos and confusion."
"In the current climate, this cannot be dismissed as innocent examples of 'imaginative play' – but further examples of the confusing and harmful ideologies which are continuing to escalate in our schools. Out of fear of questioning or going against the secular orthodoxy on these issues, teachers are forced to go along with it and to kowtow to whatever a child 'identifies' [as] at any given moment."
Williams also lamented that teachers who raise concerns over transitioning children are marginalized, silenced and even ended up losing their careers. "Truth is becoming stranger than fiction. Sadly, such is the climate of fear in schools. We can no longer rely on the common sense of teachers," she said.
